Rumors are flying that Bristol Palin, Sarah Palin’s teen-age daughter, is the real mother of 5-month old Trig Palin. Did Sarah Palin invent an elaborate cover-up to keep her daughter’s pregnancy out of the public eye? Read the story and see photos and video here.
So, is Trig really Sarah Palin’s baby, or is he her grandson? People are asking that question and are pushing for an answer. Most of the questions center around the fact that Sarah Palin didn’t announce her pregnancy until a few weeks before she gave birth. Photos of her teen-age daughter, Bristol (above right), originally described as taken in 2007 but now confirmed to have been taken in 2006 show Bristol with a rounded tummy. (Update: With the new date for the photo, however, that discredits that photo from “evidence.”) The story is further complicated in that Bristol was taken out of school this past year for up to five months because of a bad case of mono.
What do you think? I doubt that someone as politically savvy as Sarah Palin would be so naive as to believe she could keep such a monumental cover-up secret while running as VP of the USA. And why would she attempt the cover-up to begin with? Teenage pregnancies are a rather common fact of life in modern society. The “shame and disgrace” that people felt years ago are mostly nonexistent these days. I hope the Palin’s will provide proof that Trig is their own quickly in order to counter these rumors. And, if the rumors are true, then handle them immediately in order to end all the speculating.
Photos/pictures of the Palin family and a video of Sarah Palin at “7 months pregnant” are below.
Update: 9/1/08 – Sarah Palin announced today that her 17-year old daughter, Bristol is currently 5 months pregnant.
As we wrote before, Sarah Palin is much too smart to try to get away with a scam like the rumors suggested. Now we need to get on with the business of electing the best candidate for President and Vice President and leave all these tawdry personal rumors and attacks behind.
